This week, we’ve instituted a new series on Weekend Travel Inspiration. We’ll be interviewing travel companions to see how well they know their partner. We know just how important it is to find someone that meshes with you while traveling. Being isolated in a foreign country can heighten stress, so in order to enjoy the experience it’s imperative to find that perfect someone who can help you through whatever your travels throw at you.
Are You A Good Travel Companion?
This week, we’re starting off the series with two of our favorite travelers, Jim’s sister Mary and her husband Chris whom we met up with in Ireland. Hailing from two different continents, they met while traveling in South Africa and found love. As we all know, love is one thing, but can you travel well together?
